Noh Theatre

 

Hauntings and Bleeding Hearts

Reflections on Kayoi Komachi/Komachi Visited and a crash course in Noh theatre By Heidi Specht

Kayoi Komachi/Komachi Visited is an ambitious new chamber opera that blends Japanese Noh theatre and western classical music. Produced by TomoeArts, the work is a collaboration between artists from Japan and Vancouver. The story combines two Noh plays about the renowned ninth-century Japanese poet Ono no Komachi, as well as five of her original poems.
